Delta seven and were going to look at verses nine and a Bible you want about you give me Daniel chapter seven look at verses nine and says I be held until the thrones were cast down and the ancient of days did sit whose garment was white as snow notice that for a minute that his garden as white as snow because were going to comments a white garments several times in the study today the first time we meet one who's wearing it the father 's were in the white robe and the hair of Christmas I didn't like the fewer wall and his throne was like the fiery flame the father our father God does he have ahead does he have their then men were created in his which is very apparent injustice we've read one half one verse Daniel chapter seven in verse nine the title guesses the hour of the judgment that says his throne was like the fiery flame and his wheels as burning fire we don't believe the father has we also why has wheels the throne has wheels and that is so relevant to true theology if you're speaking test scoffers and gain Sayers and there are plenty of them in this world are trying to indulge you Mister for rightfully percent in a few minutes verse ten a fiery stream issued and came forth from before him thousands thousands ministered under him and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him the judgment was that and the books were opened this just stopped there for the judgment happens in the presence of who that was in the presence of the father and there we have it looks like angels are divided into two categories there are a hundred million there are observing and there are millions that are serving thousand thousands that millions ten thousand times ten thousand that is a hundred million million disturbing Angels involved in what process serving and serving in the process of judgments and judgment involves the books let's just stop for a minute books are books for the purpose of God 's knowledge the obvious God who is initiatives the all-knowing one doesn't need books and workbooks for apparently in this passage for Angels because books are being opened and are not being open for the fathers living who does it make sense to require so many because there's a lot of books and Angels are not admissions at some time that I sent you an insane this judgment is particularly interesting in point of time it's easier to point out quite a time then that the judgment many other passages in Daniel seven you have your familiar babbling Persia Greece Rome the papacy to the papacy rise to take down three other powers and then it persecutes the Saints and then you have this judgment after this judgments we rated that the power of the papacy is taken away and its body is given to the burning flame listen to it carefully then where does the judgment happen in point of time it happens after the rise of the papacy but prior to the destruction of the papacy and why prior because the judgment is the judgment that gives the project condemning the papacy to destruction the judgment gives the verdict that condemns the papacy the destruction so you can't have the papacy been destroyed prior to the verdict against it North but if someone asked word you get this idea I think you got it despite simply reading Daniel seven and Dennis Saban you have the papacy and then you have the judgment that he had the papacy given to the burning flag your say something Mister Leach was a set the all right the record is situated or that thrones are set up you have that condemns the vacancy that's right clearly just read Daniel seven out of fourth you might decide to do it in on time to see it in Daniel seven the judgment wanted therefore as they are to rule in favor of the persecuted and to condemn their persecutors turn your Bibles Revelation chapter fourteen sort of the main points that we've pointed out so far from Daniel seven that there is a judgment that happens in heaven that it is for the benefit for millions of angels that the books are there that died millions of Angels are convening apparently as an act of vengeance or justice brought on by the persecution of the little horn power in Daniel seven relation fourteen in verse six and I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven having the everlasting gospel to preach and then the drawn the earth and to every nation in kindred and twenty people saying with a loud voice fear God and give glory to him for the hour of his judgment is come and worship him that made heaven and earth to see an and the fountains of waters there are those who say that the doctrine of the investigative judgment as a segment of Adventist imagination what I want to see is that in these two passages there is nothing more clear than that there is that judgment that happens after much averse history is over but prior to the and diverse history what happens after the judgment Daniel seven the execution of the sentence against the papacy what happens after the judgment is announced in Revelation fourteen the declaration of Babylonia 's falling the warning that man should not receive the market a beast the statement they hear a day to keep the commandments of God and then finally after all of that the harvest in point of time relation fourteen has a judgment that comes after much of Earth 's history described in Revelation twelve and thirteen and yet prior to the very end of the world that looks like that at this percent judgment enough to understanding found anywhere else in your Bibles to Revelation chapter six are going to look I believe it's in verse eleven this verse eleven send a card with a loud voice was Revelation six eleven say a case of Revelation six ten and eight it says if a loud voice saying how long the Lord holy and true bestseller not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth this is the fifth seal the fifth seal you have sold represented as being under the altar there crying out for what what kind of judgment particular to avenge their blood the crying out however apparently because they have been persecuted to death this indicate that the conscious we should say so where the soldier presented as being there under the altar that is not the abodes of less more than that this is not the only kind we find that a cry for vengeance coming from dead people in the Bible you find that the blood of Abel prize for vengeance ever question is what is a cry from the answers in the Bible a prize from the ground nuts were misspelled many find Hebrews mentions the same blood of Abel this is about Jesus that his blood speaks better things than that of able if you get a study of innocent blood in the Bible you find that killing of innocent persons is a high crime the side of heaven and demands itself demands vengeance executed upon those to do it in fact the ferocity of the seven last flags is based in Revelation partly upon this because of the shedding of innocent blood what is apparent in Revelation six is that these member righteous when they were slain but notice did they have a white robe when they were slain they receive a white robe not when they die but they receive a wider role but some time after they cry for vengeance the three-day and white robes were given unto every one of them and it was sent into them they get the white robe at the second coming at the very end of the world listen and it was sent on to them that they should write rest yet for a little season they should do what it indicates that they're not having an exciting time flying planet to planet terror it enjoying the flowers of heaven where the souls doing their resting and they're going to rest for some time longer so when do they get their white robe it's while their resting because I get to my brother told it should rest yet what is the word yet the Dave already been resting they've been rested to get a white robe and they continue resting they don't get the white robe and death they don't get a resurrection against some point in the middle time sometime after the persecution the Middle Ages but was a say rest for seasoned their fellow servants also and their brother and that should be killed as they were should be fulfill sociability and archive persecution after there's so when does the white robe given the persecution the Middle Ages the cries out for vengeance than the white robes given to the righteous and in the Caribbean and time persecution of the righteous and what are the first righteous dead doing in the meantime the arresting lesson that is the address doctrine the investigative judgment I do I have adjustment is what I got José says that men are judged when they die they're not just when the resurrected their jobs late nurse history the judge may inhabit and involves books and we just read about this here it's been spoken of in Revelation chapter three and verse five relations three is about the fifth church for the fifth was the word not categories but affect another word for epic but that fifth church age the churches Sardis corresponding to the fifth seal we just read about Revelation three and verse five it says here that overcome with the same shall be clothing and was a say white arraignment does he overcome first through the club in white raiment first ever comes first that means you the Christian art are overcome made of animal white raiment yet let's not reason this white raiment does not refer to the robe of righteousness that were wearing right now as Christians that makes sense to do one set if I could say it maybe it will be a complex idea but it's not that complex in the judge right now on earth I'm claiming price righteousness to cover my sense I'm wearing his robust character and if my profession I just made a profession to you if it is sincere and true then my character will reveal that fruits of the spirit in my life that robust character is a road that I need to have it proves the legitimacy of my Christian experience to you but when I die if I die when my name comes up in judgment when my sins are race that is when I received the white robe of them are reading about here that is I'm I'm clothed with a robe that covers all of my sins that is my sins are arranged but get ahead of myself and the Bible study let's read Revelation three verse five it says Judah overcomes the same shall be clothed in white raiment lesson and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life so those books are opened in the judgment in names be blotted out of those books you know names can be blotted out of those books and it looks like you have two options here if you overcome you get a white robe if you don't your name is blotted out what to say Jesus says for I will confess his name before my father and before his angels so when the books are opened this judgment who is Jesus confessing my name to Mister the father and to the Angels and this is done in connection with one of two events either he's confessing me as an over comer in which case I'm given a white robe or he confesses me as denying him in which case my name is blotted out all the stains are to time sometime future from the fifth church age like it was from the fifth seal look at acts chapter three and verse nineteen by the way I did find the handouts asked three and verse nineteen through nineteen read this repetitive therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out that's interesting idea we have since recorded somewhere but in no sense be erased they can't listen us as when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord what is a period of time when our sins are going to be erased as of the time when we repent this passage doesn't connect the blog however since the time of our repentance it takes the sins of everybody connects into a future raise the time of refreshing record the time the latter rain and we have an idea of what part of her sister that's the lesson and he shall stand Jesus Christ which before was preached on to you so what are sins blotted out it's in connection just prior to the time when Jesus was sent from heaven to earth that's all very interesting this idea of the bloody nonsense because we read in Revelation three five is that names can be blotted out so here we help books and either nasally blotted out our sins can be blotted out enough all my sins are blotted out the makes sense that in a metaphor you would call that a white robe makes a lot of sense to me my sins are all blotted out because the testament Jesus to the father and the Angels that is a white robust one described right here Floyd looked at as a number of examples of unambiguous evidence in favor of the Adventist investigative judgment turn in your Bibles to the ecclesiastic Chapter twelve verse thirteen and fourteen Mister Little and I give you the study of infant class is to copy to give it to you right now that says let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter fear God and keep his commandments for this is the whole duty of man this interesting statement says that where to keep God 's commandments that I give the reason against first for this is the duty and then it says for God shall bring every work into judgment with every secret nine whether it be good or whether it be evil so what has been evaluating the judgment is everywhere everywhere we done good works that works in secret works that evaluate the judgment and is there a way to live in view of the judgment that's it here got a keep his commandments it's right cleared Ecclesiastes in view of the judgment were to keep his grants now this passage is interesting because it's so similar to Revelation fourteen sixty twelve the primary difference between Revelation fourteen Ecclesiastes twelve thirteen Jesse twelve places the judgment in the future in relation fourteen places it in the present that is the cleanest twelve says he's going to judge us therefore fear God and keep his commandments Russian fourteen says that he's judging us now therefore fear God inherited a keep his commandments one is future one is present but it's the same idea look at Romans chapter two overlooking in verses twelve through sixteen Romans to versus twelve through sixteen virtually really going to reserve a few phrases in their I think the phrase I want you to notice is probably in verse thirteen you see as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law is just before the parentheses in verse fourteen as many and in the law shall be judged with the say so here we go with the judgment happen we know books are being open windows for the benefit of the Angels and morbidity compared to the judgment as to the law what does that make sense and be able to read Ecclesiastes as in verse twelve all rights Ecclesiastes said that we are to keep the commandments because there is a judgment coming Romans to assess that were to be judged by the law it makes sense for not they hear is of the law are just before God but the doers of the law shall be justified so who is it that is justified in the judgment the divorce or justify the government pay attention what are they justified for justifying the judgment when they get a white robe in relation three five it is in the judgment when did they get a wonder their sins blotted out the next three as in the judgment is very clear there doors the law course and are justified later is when we think of justification if I could say this idea as I understand it the justification I received when I ask God for forgiveness is a professional justification that justification Iris C this morning when I gave my life to Jesus and asked him to forgive my sins was provisional the condition of the holding on as unfaithful to the end and what is the judgment evaluate whether I have been faithful to the ongoing and had myself because it's right here in Romans two eleven percent in an earlier passage that was a saying around verse fifteen their thoughts the meanwhile accusing or else excusing one another and in verse sixteen says in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men everybody by judging the secrets of men before we read about that Ecclesiastes you are told as part of the gospel according to my gospel turn your Bibles to Exodus chapter thirty two and are looking at verse thirty four Exodus thirty two member looking at verse thirty four assets willing were about on page three million Exodus thirty two verse thirty four this is just after Moses has pleaded with God forgive the people in it he said in verse thirty two he said and if not blot me I pray the out of the book which you have written that God comes back in response that she has hardened the people but as far as blocking those that value makes no such agreement than in the case of them that's been against me well I blot out of the book lesson is blotted out of the book sells a sin against God it's as clear as the day God introduces this idea and exodus by saying that people were blotted out of the book is blotted out as the centers bad name because we all are sinners and this is the significance of that white robe and reading about when Jesus confesses me before the father and the Angels my sins are blotted out to nine given a white robe and and only because of that my name is not blotted out of the book reasons but out of the book those that sin is and is not one of the book those that have a white robe may have your handout back I thought I had a complete once again William Pitt and I know I didn't have it turn your Bibles to Luke chapter twelve and verse eight Luke chapter twelve conversely it has also I send to you whoever confesses me before men the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God this verse at this point in our study should offer nothing new to us except for a confirmation of what's gone before what was the confession made for in this verse verse eight okay yet it's an favor those confessed Christ and who as it may before is mega for the Angels doesn't mention the father here look at verse nine but you deny me before men will be denied before the angels of God of course we read in Revelation three and he confesses us before the father but the father has set this to his seal but he knows those the dark has what's very apparent and Luke eight is what we can and for another passages that judgment and have been is for the Angels the Angels are to find out as Jesus confesses or denies whether or not we are going to be in heaven or not the Angels are observing this thing is for them to see the record books themselves and they are going to watch sins blotted out our names blotted out some people and then confused because what the final revelation twenty myself now some people Revelation twenty was very confusing to me for a long part of my Christian experience turn your Bibles revelation twenty Revelation twenty contains what we call the millennium in verses four through six after the millennium in verses seven to ten you have that surrounding of the city and the lake of fire that devils for the lake of fire in verse ten looking at verse eleven then I saw a great white throne and him who sat on it from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away and numerous brown no place for them where is this great great white throne been set but doesn't look like it's been set having this means that somewhere close enough to our reports have an impact on geological processes here is that differ differ somewhat from the judgment read about in Revelation seven one referred to in Leucadia Revelation three all they meant to write about thus far happened in heaven but this was happening right here on terror not so firm verse twelve and I saw the dad small and great standing before God and the books were opened and another book was opened which is the book of life and the dead were judged according to their works by the guys which are written in the books I was here witnessing this judgment would have to say that once dad but their dad no longer earlier in the same chapter said that the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were over and here they are standing there being judged out of the things written in the books we don't read here about anything like intercession we don't read here about any names being blotted out persons being blotted out verse thirteen thousand the sea gave up the dead which were in it and death and Hades delivered up the dead which were in them and they were judged each one according to his works you'll read about any mercy here then death and Hades were cast in the lake of fire this is not second the great white throne judgment is similar to the judgment read about and that people are judged out of the books but it's different in a number of respects men are warned about the judgment going on in heaven while it's happening the judgment is for the Angels happens what were alive here and were told about it were we told about it because it's time to get our lifestream of the judgments ongoing as a kind of your lifestream in the great white throne judgment happens this is a judgment that is not mixed with mercy and who is this judgment for very apparently this judgment is for the lost is when the lost get to see the record of their own lives than that has nearly every be in the universe seeing the box all the Angels all the lost the father and the son everyone except the righteous do they get to see the books look at Revelation chapter twenty and verse four and I saw thrones and they that sat on them and judgment was committed to them and I saw the souls of those but been beheaded for the witness to Jesus and for the word of God would not worship the beast nor his image and had not received the mark and therefore had to run their hands and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years who's the judgment given to the judgment here is committed to the righteous here they are with Christ in heaven for a thousand years and they're going over the books so what is the teaching of the Bible on these things is that everyone sees the books the righteous see them in the thousand years the wicked at the conclusion of the thousand years the Angels currently in one were looking up during the thousand years are we looking only the record of human life what at first Corinthians six say no you not that you shall judge angels mean those wicked ones in particular turn in your Bibles to the book of Jude judging angels first pregnancy X verse three I probably has verse three returning to Jude and were looking at verse fourteen June first fourteen says not in the seventh from Adam prophesied about these men also I was flat out a word about the book of the Bible never mentions it for all we know Phoenix that these things we have no record of a book being carried on the arc and if you find a book of the neck that includes this passage you should know that the easiest thing to do if you want to write us a graphical book and pretend with Scripture would be to write the book of V-neck the Senate in the fall for such a lame trick would be an easy it wouldn't speak well of your critical pesticide points to my mind club and reading e-mails by people who critical thinking was defective not respect not eject the seventh from Adam prophesied about these men also saying behold the Lord comes with ten thousand of his saints to execute judgment upon all and to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly the website have committed in an ungodly way and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against him if we asked the question what is Jesus coming for what baseline for 3-D in his own to take us back to having but there's something else is coming for them was that is going for judgment is not coming to condemn those who still claim the Renaissance is coming to convince them he's coming for judgment and is not coming to destroy those two still claim their innocence is coming to convince them of their ungodliness if we asked the question is the speaking about his second coming or his start coming doesn't answer why it's not so clear in the passage and that answer is that what he does it those two comings is so similar that this passage would be true whichever one you applied it to remedy biblical evidence that he convinces the ungodly their ungodly deeds and returns the first time we do Matthew twenty five Matthew seven he we heard about in prayer meetings in Matthew twenty five the less the know you have not been living out the love that I have demonstrated to you and is verily as you've not done kind things to the least of these you'd not done unto me he convinces young guy live ungodly are they convinced before he convinces them very apparently they did there in denial in Matthew seven they convinced before he convinces them break either denial is a Lord Lord have we not your names on all these wonderful works when he comes back he could just condemn all those people in denial and just destroy them in their state of denial that this now what he's doing our God is convincing the ungodly of their ungodly deeds and for this the books of record are open for them after the thousand years and so is fulfilled that statement of Paul and so every knee shall that turn your Bible to first Corinthian chapter fifteen after this passage I'm going to summarize and be done first Corinthians chapter fifteen were going to look at verse twenty one this has forced hands by man came death by man that is Jesus also came the resurrection of the dead for as in Adam all die even so in Christ shall all be made alive is only the righteous than are made alive the other worker made a life to for why you might ask because when they die they were not convinced of their ungodly deeds verse twenty three but each in his own order Christ the first fruits after word of those who are Christ's at his coming verse twenty four now comes the end when he delivers the kingdom to God the father when he puts an end to all rule and all authority and all power for he must reign in his book all enemies under his feet in the last enemy that shall be destroyed is death so what's the order of events while life is going on here on earth after the persecution the Middle Ages while innocent blood is calling out for justice angels in heaven by their price individually confesses or denies professed Christians this he confessed them all busy denying them all know he confesses and he denies and one large body of those who profess him but we were persecutors of their brother and he denies them in the judgment that happens in heaven but as he confesses and denies that he confesses then they receive white robes in their sins are blotted out but if he denies them than they have since laughed and anyone who says laughter name is blotted from the book of life we In re Daniel twelve hundred twelve thousand processes over then there is a time of trouble here on earth the seven last license referring to and who is destroying the seven last plagues those whose names are not found written in the book of life then Christ comes back and those who are righteous or wicked and have not died yet she convinces them of their ungodly neat ungodly deeds before their distorted the presence of his coming vendor in the thousand years the books are open for the righteous they judge a man and a judge angels are not judging each other there judging those whose names are not written in the book of life there's no way to judge those his for life because a record of their lives has been erased exactly at the end of thousand years everyone is raise the wicked dead are raised and there you have a great white throne judgment there all before him the books are open they all see and every one of them is convinced we gather from this statement that every knee shall bow that there can be convinced to that extent that they're willing to bow to him then there destroyed in the lake of fire all enemies are put down in the last enemy destroyed is the enemy of death thus the thorough doctrine of the Adventist message of judgment nowhere does imply ignorance in the part of God are on the part of Jesus everywhere implies that God is interested in being vindicated for his fairness in his righteous judgments when the seven last place start remember that cry that their angels in heaven give they say righteous about art thou for you have judged and thus they say great and marvelous are thy ways O King of Saints you are why just and true because your judgments are made manifest that is the fairness in righteousness of God has been made apparent to all the angels and they see and before the final judgments or figs flipped on the wicked they also see it Revelation chapter fifteen the first number I don't know if it's a short chapter verse three and four star has refer our father in heaven I asked that she would take which presented here and use it to confirm in our hearts your fairness your kindness your openness to evaluation prepare us to receive the white road lives of more consequence than any other I asked for that gift name of Jesus in
